This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You cannot do that with bare UML, it just does not provide this feature.

So you will have to install some kind of server inside the UML guest so it can be accessed from the host. Generally one would go for SAMBA (fairly straightforward to setup) or NFS (harder imo), but there are a multitude of options there, even some esoteric ones like sshfs which are very easy to setup and may just be the ticket for you.
